Recap: Baltimore vs. Cleveland

Baltimore, MD (Sports Network) - The Orioles used a five-run fifth inning to surge past the Cleveland Indians, 7-3, in the finale of a four-game set at Camden Yards on Thursday to split the series.

Miguel Gonzalez (6-3) pitched an effective 6 2/3 innings, surrendering three runs on nine hits with a career-high tying nine strikeouts. Gonzalez is a perfect 4-0 at Camden Yards and the Orioles are undefeated in his seven home starts.

Ryan Flaherty finished 2-for-3 with two runs batted in while Nick Markakis, Chris Davis, Matt Wieters and J.J. Hardy each recorded an RBI for the Orioles, who won for just the second time in their last seven games.

Corey Kluber (6-5), who snapped a three-game winning streak, was dinged for seven runs -- six earned -- on 11 hits, tying a season-high, in just 4 2/3 innings.

Mike Aviles and Lonnie Chisenhall each connected for solo shots for the Indians, who visit AL Central foe Chicago on Friday to begin a four-game series.

The O's trailed, 3-2, until they used a five-run home fifth, with the help of some Cleveland errors, to open up the game.

Flaherty and Nate McLouth each singled to begin the frame. After a Manny Machado strike out, Markakis' line drive to center tied up the game. Adam Jones' floater dropped in right field to load the bases. On a Davis grounder that looked like a double play ball, Aviles had trouble fielding the ball and could only get Jones out at second which allowed McLouth to score and the inning continue.

Wieters' double off the right-field wall was bobbled by Drew Stubbs and crossed Markakis and Davis to give Baltimore a 6-3 lead. Hardy capped the scoring off by beating out an infield single to increase the cushion to four.

The Indians got the scoring going when Chisenhall connected on a solo home run to right in the second.

The lead vanished quickly when the Orioles answered in the home half of the inning. Davis walked to start the frame and after Wieters singled, both of the runners adavanced a base on a sacrifice bunt. Flaherty delivered a two-out single to right to that scored Davis and Wieters.

Michael Brantley's ground rule double led off the fourth. Two batters later, he crossed the plate on a Chisenhall double to right to tie the game at 2-2.

Aviles homered to start the fifth inning to give Cleveland a one-run lead.
